And if he did die how do know he wouldn't pick someone else to finish the series. Just look at Wheel of Time, Brandon Sanderson took over and his books got better reviews than some of Robert Jordan's. Then we have Terry Pratchett already announcing that his daughter will take over Discworld when he can't write anymore.
On the other hand, Brian Herbert.

I agree. I've never worried about him dying or something. That's absurd. I also don't like the assumption that if he died the worst part about it would be the fact that the series won't be finished as opposed to how sad it would be that a person, y'know, died.
Very noble of you... given that there are people dying on this planet every second do you cry for all of them too?

It certainly sucks when people die but I can't bring myself to wallow in pity for all of them because dying is the inevitable sequel to living.

I don't know GRRM, all I know is his work. So yes, from my point of view the biggest impact on me would be his work being unfinished.

And FYI, his mortality is on his mind as well, he's given the show runners broad stroke info on how the story plays out in case he were to die.

Oh, someone is getting defensive. I'm not saying you have to cry for him but I am saying the fact that a man who is much loved by his fans and colleagues dying is much sadder than the fact that ASoIaF wouldn't be finished. But, hey, that's just me with my priorities straight. I care about people before fandom.

I am well aware that he gave the broad strokes to D&D but that was also because they need to know them so they know what to omit and what not to omit when making the show. And for that matter, Martin has repeatedly stated he finds it eerie that people are talking about and predicting his death. I can't blame him.

I just got back in town and watched the trailer. That was great.

Was that an image of Theon/Reek in a hood?

Most likely it is him. It's the same bag the Ironborn put over his head at the end of S2, I think.

Jaime Lannister's no-good very-bad day continues in that trailer. With his screaming face shown while Jorah talks about the beast that comes out when you puts a sword in a man's hand, and Catelyn telling Robb to hurt their enemies by taking away their loved ones, the trailer editors are just playing with us.

I wasn't getting defensive, I was getting offensive.

I found your statement about caring that "a person, y'know, died" as useless as "won't somebody think of the children!"

Hope this doesn't cause the problems the old "Armageddon" posters did back in 1998.

The episode titles have been revealed. Most of them anyway.

Well, that clarifies how much of the Daenerys storyline they're doing in season three: Astapor and Yunkai, but not Meereen. Unless they're merging the cities in some way.

Just started reading A Clash of Kings for the first time last night, in preparation for watching Season 2 of GoT, which I just got a couple hours ago.

I noticed when looking at the wikipedia page for Season 3 of GoT, that Shireen and her mother (who's name is escaping me ATM) are new characters. So does that mean that they skipped over the prolouge from ACoK?
